HOW TERRIBLE.!!!!
Free fruit for kids while you are shopping in store.

How can this be voted cold?
As for the fruit, if worried about washing it get the banged up banana. No wash required.
Given some heat, yeah it's been around for yonks but not everyone is aware so what's the harm in posting it.

It's always been free
No I didnt know, been living in a cave
Plus the lawsuit that comes when someone trips on something a kid has dropped
Aww come on, if you didn't know, it's decent, if you did know, nothing to see here, move on but yes, it's cool, makes our little one look forward to Tesco!

Really, little one getting exited to visit tesco for a piece of fruit, quite believable, perhaps not, free Haribo’s sound more convincing.
I always thought they did - or was that the chocolates ?
I love the fact that our Tesco now includes a sign saying 'wash before use' on the fruit. Where are you supposed to wash them ? They are clearly designed to pick up and eat in store.

Yeah it's been on for years, good fruit normally, not the going out of date stuff. They also do it in other stores but can't remember which ones.
I’m gonna be awkward & say this deal annoys me.... my wee one is so used to getting Tesco fruit he thinks he can do it in all shops. He’s only 3 so it has its disadvantages too.
Not voting.... just saying .
Have you been living under a stone?!!(skeptical)
This already existed for a long time
Never heard of this before. Great deal.
No idea why it's getting voted cold 😳

When in another store who do not have free fruit for kids - why not let your 3 year old pick a piece of fruit.
Weigh it
Get the printed label with price on.
Let your child eat the piece of fruit he has chosen.
You pay for the fruit he has eaten.
or
If you plan to go shopping in a store where they don't have free fruit for kids - let your son pick a piece of fruit before he leaves home - and let him eat that while you are shopping.

I cannot see how your 3 year old getting into the habit of eating fresh fruit while you are shopping has a down side.
For one thing - 'Experts' have been telling us for ever, for US not to go shopping on an empty stomach - as we will be more susceptible to buy things 'on impulse'. So encouraging your child at 3 to eat some fruit while shopping - what a Brilliant idea I say!
Now if he wanted a can of Stella, or a slab of chocolate ..... I could understand you being concerned about him getting bad habits.

Personally - I often feel tempted to grab a piece of fruit when I pop into Tesco...... but of course I don't. I just go and buy some fruit instead. Would save me a fortune if I could snaffle something intended for the kids.
M&S do this too
This sounds great in principle but my tesco has always got the old horrible fruit in the free to eat section. Not a problem for me as I just get the nice ones from the shelf but people who aren't as cheeky as me have the slops

It’s not the point of fruit having a downside ... it’s the fact he doesn’t understand the difference between free & not free. I also have more than one child. Should I buy them all a piece of fruit everytime I go to a shop to justify Tesco giving free fruit?
I appreciate the gesture from Tesco, it’s just confusing for children. I’m pretty sure that’s a valid point.

Yes. Unless you go food shopping more than 5 times per day

I'm pretty sure that is no child in the photo! That's a damn grown up man on his knees! Cheeky beggar!

You're meant to drive to Tesco, get the fruit, get back in your car, drive home, wash the fruit, get back in the car, drive to Tesco and commence your shop with your freshly washed, free fruit

Of course it's not a valid point. Sometimes a parent will let their child have something other times they will not. That will happen no matter what shop you are in and It's cost is irrelevant to the child. If your children are confused it isn't Tesco who are to blame.
Waitrose do this too

Once again we’re not talking about something or sometimes. The conversation is specific, it’s FREE fruit which Tesco ALWAYS offer.
My child doesn’t know the difference between Tesco & other supermarkets. At just turned 3 I think he’s a little young to bore his brain on the politics of supermarkets. Therefore there is no blame on Tesco nor my parenting. It’s a simple confusion .... Capiche?

But as your son doesn't know one store from another, to him when he goes into a store sometimes he gets a piece of fruit and sometimes he doesn't. Just as sometimes I guess, when you, another family member or friend come to your home any of you might have got him a little gift that doesn't mean you do it every time in case he gets confused.
BTW having reread my earlier comment I can see where your "blame on... my parenting" comment comes from and I want to make it clear that I was not suggesting that, nor had I even thought of it. I did and still do think you are finding a disadvantage where none exists.

I appreciate your reply in relation to the “blame” comment. Thanks for explaining that. In regards to the rest I think we could argue all day long.
We both have our own opinions & i think it’s best that we agree to disagree.

It’s actually been good to discuss something on here & it not go into a full blown troll war.

No doubt somewhere on here we’ll meet again ..
on that note have a good evening
